What People Say About Dr. Patrick Thomas, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Awesome results and full recovery, strength and range of motion. Dr. Thomas performed a complete rotator cuff tear repair with a small scope (arthroscopy) and few very tiny incisions. Very little pain and fast healing. He also was very great at explaining (in understandable terms) the procedure pre and post op, reviewing MRI results, using a shoulder model and explaining what to expect post op. He, the team, anesthesiologist (shoulder block highly recommended for little post op pain), PT awesome
